DIONYSIUS I OF SYRACUSE AND GREEK TYRANNY
Written by L.J. Sanders.
Stock no. 1815045
Published by Croom Helm. 1st 1987. Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper.

Dionysius I appears in history as a tyrant in the worst, modern sense of the word. Yes, according to ancient testimony, was deeply concerned with the establishment of a just regime and to whom Plato turned in his endeavours to found an ideal Republic on earth. This book argues that the hostile picture of Dionysius is basically Athenian, deriving from Athenian political circles engaged in propaganda aimed at tarnishing the tyrant's reputation. Purple boards, gilt title to spine. ISBN: 0709954034. Top edge of text block a little grubby. Dustwrapper lightly scuffed.
